Colorful Bath Trend

Turquoise tile and pale pink sinks are back once again, creating a rift in the interior design community. Some interior designers love it and others…not so much. But really our opinions don’t matter because making our clients’ wishes and visions become reality is our job. Kohler has reintroduced bath fixtures in two shades from the 1930’s: Spring Green, an icy teal, and Peachblow, a mauvy pink. What do you think? Are you ready to plunge into the colorful bathroom movement? […]
